Over the past two decades, A sia n countries have been engaged in an academic competition for academic publishing, and this amazing growth of academic publications is found in Singapore, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and China where countries are regarded as newly industrialized economies (NIEs). According to the databases of Thomson Reuters, the volume of publications in the East Asian NIEs has exceeded that of the United States, which was the main contributor for academic publications between 2006 and 2010 (Taiwan Research Report 2011, 5). Taking 1991 as the baseline year where the index equals 100, South Korea, China, Singapore, and Taiwan all have experienced significant growth in the publication volume, more rapidly than the United States and Japan, the world’s leading nations for innovation and technology (Figure 5.1).
